For those watching the Repco Supercars championship from home this year, television broadcasts will look significantly different than previous seasons.
The championship has unveiled sneak peeks into what the new TV graphics will look like ahead of next week’s season opener.
A blend between the current graphics used in Formula 1 and the World Superbike Championship, Supercars’ fresh look is designed to give TV audiences an easy-to-follow break down of the on-track action.
The graphics will be a part of the Sky Sport feed for New Zealand viewers and all broadcasting networks across Australia.
The revamped look is what Supercars TV boss Nathen Prendergast hopes to give the series its “own identity.”
“I’m excited to share with fans our new look GFX package designed specifically and dedicated to Supercars,” Prendergast said.
“Historically the sport has adopted the GFX look of the rights holders but in line with other global motorsport properties, we have worked with our partner Girraphic in creating a package that is bespoke to Supercars.”
“Among the most notable changes are the brand-new totem that no longer utilises abbreviations for drivers’ names in a single driver mode making it easier for viewers to find their favourite driver.”
The first round of the 2021 Supercars championship will be at Mount Panorama over February 27-28.
